What Is Life Like Here?

It’s the most common question we’re asked. Documentary filmmakers captured our residents’ answers.

Daily life might look different, but it isn't stopping friendships and connections. Filmmakers visited four HumanGood communities over seven days in the fall of 2020 so residents could share their stories.

Is The Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens a Good Financial Fit?

Answer 7 simple questions and our easy-to-use calculator will assess which independent living option might be a fit for you.

“When we first visited The Terraces, we were amazed at the beauty of the community and the friendly atmosphere. Now that we live here, our lives are so much better. I take yoga and water aerobics classes and play canasta and dominos with friends. And I still have time to do my volunteer work. Best of all, we know we’ll be cared for if we ever need it. Our kids know it too, and that’s comforting for everybody. We’re very happy to be here.”

Bev Smith

"I value my friendships here very much. There are so many new people to meet, new stories to hear. I really enjoy being a part of what's going on here. It gives you a sense of belonging and a sense of family."

Cathy S.

“The ideal time to move is before you need to. I was able to take the time to downsize without too much stress, and didn’t have to burden my family with any of it. Plus, moving sooner allows you to enjoy more of the activities and great people here. I live in the Piazza building and I love to entertain friends – from on and off campus. I also saw the benefit of the on-site health services when I rehabbed at The Village after my knee replacement. The care I received was excellent, and so close to home.”

Rosemary Cotton

“My wife and I keep very busy here. We’re in the band and serve on multiple resident councils. It’s the greatest place on earth to live. The people are friendly, the lifestyle is carefree and the amenities are wonderful. It’s like living in a resort, but it’s our home. We love it!”

Harvey Zimmerman

"Moving to TSJG has eliminated the burden of home maintenance and upkeep."

Boyd C.

"I chose to live at The Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens because it provides a great deal of value for my money."
